Rights and Restrictions Information

Prints and Photographs Division, Library of Congress, Washington, D.C., 20540-4730

There are no restrictions known to the Library.

Access: Permitted; subject to Prints & Photographs Division (P&P) policy on serving originals.

Reproduction (photocopying, hand-held camera copying, photoduplication and other forms of copying allowed by "fair use"): Permitted; subject to P&P policy on copying. This policy prohibits xeroxing of most original photographs in this collection.

Publication and other forms of distribution: Permitted. There are no known restrictions on photographs in this collection. About fifty of the portraits of soldiers (mostly enlisted men) in the "Selected Civil War Photographs" are copies of photographs that the Library of Congress borrowed during the 1950s and early 1960s. (The catalog records for these images contain a note field beginning "Copy photo made by LC...".) After copying, the original photographs were returned to their owners but the Library did not retain a record of their names and addresses. The Library is not aware of any restrictions on these images, but is anxious to hear from individuals or institutions that own the original photographs or who know of their history.

Credit Line: Library of Congress, Prints & Photographs Division, Civil War Photographs, [reproduction number, e.g., LC-B8184-3287.]
